What's In Your Weed...CO to Consider Organic Marijuana Standards

Just as Colorado was the first state to legalize recreational marijuana sales, it's now trying to lead the way in creating organic standards for the herb. If approved new laws would put into place standards to be met before the pot can be sold or presented as organic. 

What's In Your Weed...CO to Consider Organic Marijuana Standards?Food labeled with the organic symbol has to be grown to certain specifications, and proposed new legislation would require marijuana growers to also follow a certain set of standards before the product can be called or labeled organic.

Organic standards for food are federally regulated. Marijuana is federally illegal, so there are no federal standards in place for pot. Setting a state organic marijuana standard would eliminate confusion, and let the consumer know for sure if they are indeed buying an organic product.

While eliminating confusion seems like a good idea to some, there are others that argue the new standards would be a financial burden to the small growers.  

In the past year certain pot has been recalled because of some pesticides that may have been used. According to those in the industry...not much of the recalled pot has been returned. 

The legalization of marijuana in our state is certainly an interesting topic. Here's the links to some other articles I've written on the subject. 

Here's an overview of Colorado's Marijuana Law.

I've lived on Colorado's Western Slope for over 26 years. I love this area and all it has to offer, and I enjoy sharing what I know about my home. As a REALTOR®, I also love to share my expertise in this area as well. If you need real estate information for Montrose County, or Delta County, Colorado...please give me a call.

Hi, David Baker Realtor - Laveen Homes for sale ...I remember when people smoked ditch weed and were happy to get it. Now they want it organic. LOL.

Hi, Bob Ratliff ...I will continue to share information on legalized pot as it comes up and I think it's worth sharing. I know the state has some issues to weed (pun intended) before this whole things settles down.

Hi, Joe Pryor ...this industry is so heavily regulated. Now the state and different counties are forcing growers to have commercial water permits for the large scale grow operations. This is just crazy.

You can regulate the standards by which it's grown, Noah Seidenberg . The legal commercial growers can follow a set of standards and have the soils and product tested before they sell it to the retail stores. Already this industry is so heavily regulated, so it wouldn't be too difficult to get organic standards in place.

Don't believe a lot of what you hear about CO and the legalization of marijuana, William Feela . The media is focusing on the bad things.

Hi, James Dray ...there are patients that swear by pot for helping to relieve pain and other problems. I tried a lotion made from the oil. It really helped a big bruise I had on my arm.

Hi, Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD ...I find legalized pot a very interesting topic, and people like to read about it. As I understand it, WA doesn't allow residents to grow it? In CO each person of legal age can grow up to six plants.

I have to disagree with you there, Larry Johnston ...I know some serious pot smokers and they really do care about what's in their pot.
